Lagoon Camp lies on the shady banks of the Kwando River among tall and ancient
African Ebony and Marula trees, under the watchful gaze of the resident hippos.
Lagoon Camp accommodates only 16 guests in 8 twin bedded luxury safari-style
tents. Each tent looks out over the water and has private en-suite facilities,
including 24 hour hot and cold running water, open-air showers, flush toilets
and modern amenities.
Lagoon Camp stands out as one of the most beautiful settings of any safari camp.
Morning and night game drives are conducted by our specialist guides and
trackers in open safari vehicles. This area is home to huge herds of elephants
and buffalo. There are few places in Africa where such concentrated numbers of
these animals exist, especially in the dry season.
The shady, treed environment of the camp hosts a great variety of birds and
squirrels that visit daily. A family of hippo and an elephant or three are
regularly sighted from the tents. This contributes to the relaxed calm that
prevails at Lagoon.
The predators are also well represented by lion, hyena, leopard, cheetah and
Lagoon is famous as the best venue in Africa for wild dog viewing as the dogs
have denned near the camp every year of the camps existence.
These animals are generally very relaxed in the presence of vehicles, meaning
the sightings are usually at close range and many guests have seen amazing
action as these pics attest.
Among the great variety of antelope species found at Lagoon, the endangered
Sable and Roan are often seen. Seasonally, large herds of elephant drink almost
daily at the river bank in front of the camp, in full view of the guests. The
big herds attract big predators. The lions of Kwando are famous for their
elephant, hippo and buffalo kills. Playful spotted necked otters are commonly
seen performing in the Lagoon right in front of the tents.
Boat cruises along the Kwando River provide excellent opportunities for birding.
We also offer specialist fly fishing and spinner fishing for Tiger fish and
Bream. Some excellent catches have been made by Kwando guests. Lagoon's
complement of staff are there to look after you quietly and efficiently, so as
to ensure a relaxing, peaceful stay.
There is a guest pool in which to cool off during the hot months.
Freshly prepared delicious meals are served in the thatched dining room
overlooking the tranquil waters of the lagoon.
